This video, from Game Trailers, is a count down of one editor’s most anticipated motion controlled games. At the top of the list: Skyward Sword! It’s no surprise really, because the Playstation Move and Xbox Kinect have yet to prove that they can deliver a really serious game.

My bet is that there’s only one Wii game on the list of 5 games because nothing is really new to the Nintendo console. Since the Kinect and Move still have the potential to surprise gamers, they are more highly anticipated.

Then there’s this quote from the video:

This version of Zelda promises to give players what they’ve been wanting: control over Link’s legendary blade with one-to-one motion control.

Is that really what we’ve wanted? I hear more often that the ‘fans’ she mentions preferred when a furious flash of the sword can be unleashed with the simple press of a button and not a tiring wave of the arm. The quote makes her lose some credibility, but at least she was intelligent enough to put Skyward Sword in the top spot.

Let us know if you agree with the video’s order! Have you been waiting for one-to-one motion controls? Do you think the Kinect or Move can support a serious title like something from the Zelda series? Let us know in the comments.
